What are the Best Pre-Workout Smoothies for Women?

Audrey Herndon | Feb 17 2021 | Tags: Pre-Workout Smoothie

Are you looking for a way to boost your workout without having to waste money on supplements and processed drinks and powders? Consider having a smoothie instead!

As popular as it is, the pre-workout market today is proliferated with untested and unsafe supplement products. This has made consumers increasingly wary of consuming any pre-workout, including pain relievers, energy drinks, and other health products. It is essential to ensure that the pre-workout you intend to purchase has been tested and recommended by the FDA. These concerns are valid and reasonable since nobody wants to put their health at risk by consuming a commodity that hasn't been tested.

It is for this reason that we strongly recommend prioritizing smoothies. Smoothies are perfect pre-workout drinks made from natural products. They do not contain manufactured ingredients such as added sugars and fats, as well as colorings and preservatives, and you can make them using whatever ingredients you have in your kitchen.

Here are the top three pre-workout smoothies for women that are guaranteed to make you last longer in your workouts. As a base for these smoothies, consider starting with the  SmoothieBox Berry or Green smoothie pouch.

1. Berry Smoothie

This is a frosty and naturally sweet smoothie that is packed with a nutritious punch and a lot of flavor. It contains a blend of good protein and carb ingredients such as bananas, blueberries, yogurt, flax, oats, and almond. You can incorporate a tangy and extra creamy taste and texture to this already perfect smoothie by adding greek yogurt.

2. Green Monster Smoothie

The taste of the peanut butter and banana cover that of spinach completely. To shake up this smoothie, you can swap recipes from time to time like using pineapple instead of banana, almond milk instead of cow's milk, or substituting peanut butter with almond butter. You can also add a pinch of protein powder to make it even more beneficial.

3. Tropical Tease Smoothie

This smoothie is particularly good for vegans. It is filled with fruits and lots of protein from tofu and soy milk. Cantaloupe and pineapple gives it its sweet taste while coconut and lime juice extract provide it with a noticeably tropical flavor. You also have the option of swapping cow's milk with orange juice, and yogurt instead of tofu.

All of these smoothies contain ingredients high in magnesium, calcium, and B vitamins, which are essential nutrients for women's health.

While these are just three quick recipes to consider, you can mix any combination of these ingredients to find the smoothie of your liking.  As long as it contains protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats, it will give your body the boost it needs right before your workout.
